Ugo Humbert v Pablo Andujar Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 23-year old Frenchman and the Spaniard, who is twelve years older.
Humbert, Reached Career High Ranking
Humbert reached a career high world ranking after winning his third senior career title on the grass of Halle in June, beating Andrey Rublev in the final.
That is in addition to the Auckland Open and the European Open titles which he won last year, both on hard courts.
It was, therefore, a disappointment to him when he was beaten in his last match in the first round of Wimbledon by Nick Kyrgios, the Australian coming from two sets to one down.
Like his opponent, he is playing in his first Olympics, and he has yet to represent France in the Davis Cup either.
In terms of majors though, his best performance yet came at Wimbledon two years ago, when he reached the fourth round.
Andujar Not on His Preferred Surface
Andujar-Alba has won four career titles, and appeared in five other finals. All of them on clay. However, he is making his Olympic debut at the age of 35, and partly gets his chance because Rafael Nadal decided not to make the trip to Tokyo.
All of his best results in 2021 have come on clay – he reached the quarter-finals in Buenos Aires in March, and then two months later the semi-finals in Geneva, before losing to the Norwegian Casper Ruud.
Since then, he was beaten in the second round of the French Open by Federico Delbonis, and, although he won his first round match at Wimbledon, he had to pull out of his second round encounter with Denis Shapovalov with injury.
He has not played competitively since.
Humbert v Andujar-Alba Prediction and Tip
Humbert will start the favourite to win this match, not only because of his higher ranking and better form, but also because of the surface, with the Spaniard much preferring clay.
